Chesapeake, VA Personal Injury Lawyer Info: 308,000 Harley-Davidson Motorcycles Recalled

Harley-Davidson is recalling more than 300,000 motorcycles because of a switch problem that can cause brake lights to fail. The company has learned that excessive heat from the exhaust system negatively affects the switch and can also cause fluid leaks that make brakes inoperable.

The recall includes 2009-2012 Touring, CVO Touring and Trike motorcycles. If you own one of those models, visit your local Harley dealer to have a rear brake light switch kit installed free of charge.

Harley began receiving reports of rear brake trouble in June 2010 and knows of at least one accident with injuries related to the problem. The company continues to investigate that crash, which occurred in Louisiana but claims it has heard of no similar incidents.

Harley-Davidson motorcycle fans are some of the most passionate motorists on the road, but they should not take their safety lightly. From the description of this malfunction, an average ride could quickly turn into a dangerous one. Brake lights and rear brakes are critical to the function of a properly operated motorcycle. Thankfully, Harley is issuing this recall before anyone else gets hurt.
